The NC Division of Mental Health Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services (DMHDDSAS) seeks your assistance in identifying current needs for training across their system servicing children, youth, and young adults dually diagnosed with a mental illness and an intellectual or developmental disability (to include autism spectrum disorder).
DMHDDSAS and Behavioral Health Springboard-UNC Chapel Hill School of Social Work have collaborated to develop a needs assessment to gain more insight on how to best support the workforce.
Currently, they are expanding their training and workforce development efforts and would like your feedback on the subject areas needed for targeted training. They are requesting information from mental health and intellectual and developmental disability provider agencies, LME-MCO staff, consumers, families, and DHHS staff to accomplish this task.
The assessment will take approximately five minutes to complete and is completely voluntary. All responses will be recorded anonymously. They would like as many responses as possible and encourage multiple individuals within organizations and families to complete the needs assessment. If you are a provider agency with multiple sites; they encourage multiple staff from each local site to complete.
Responses will help craft the training and workforce development efforts to strengthen a highly qualified child serving behavioral health system.
The needs assessment will close to participation on Monday, June 14, 2021 at 5 pm.
